The date

Our daters had a meal at Waterfall Ristorante Italiano

First impression

Jin: “He is charming, laid-back and knows his wine really well.”

Zai: “She is very bubbly, fun and gives off good vibes.”


Jin: “We hit it off straight away when we started to talk about our love of blockbusters.”

Zai: “I feel like we hit it off right away! She’s pretty much the female version of me!”

Awkward Moment 

Jin: “We didn’t know how to start the conversation so it was a bit slow in the beginning but eventually it got more exciting.”

Zai: “Besides introductory pleasantries, there were close to none.”


Jin: “We spent the whole night just talking and drinking that we didn’t even notice the time.”

Zai: “It was probably the longest I’ve stayed on after dinner just talking before we realised the time. And the reality that we had work the next day.”


Jin: ♥♥♥♥ “He is an interesting and fun person, as well as a great listener. It was a great date and I hope we will see each other soon.”

Zai: ♥♥♥ “We can really connect as individuals. I haven’t had a refreshing and long conversation over dinner in a while. It was close to the perfect date.”
